record books. >> i moved on her like a [ bleep ]. >> it is a troubling situation. i'm serious, it is. >> give them a shot good morning and welcome to sunday "today," i'm willie geist. donald trump and hillary clinton in final preparations for tonights second presidential debate and the spotlight on trump will be white hot after the release friday of a tape from 2005 in which trump makes repeated ugly aggressive comments about women. so far 150 republican leaders have withdrawn their support from trump over the course of
6:01 am
since friday when the tape was released, we will hear from one man who abandoned trump after hearing the tape and another sticking by his side. later ryan at the timer and his band one republic have a long list of hits, but he is also called by stars when they need a hit of their own. >> why is it that taylor swift, adele, beyonc?, all of thinks acts that are the biggest in the world why do the >> i think what i do maybe that's specific to me is i have a certain emotional currency in the lyrics and mel december that i do. >> we will talk to ryan in a bit. let's begin with the fallout from those tapes of donald trump first reported on friday. despite a long list of republicans withdrawing his support trump says he is not going anywhere. hallie jackson is in st. louis this morning, site of tonight's
6:02 am
for more fallout in the gop. trump's team straken and strategizing, his campaign manager and head of the party pulling out of planned sunday show appearances. through it all, though, donald trump insists he is sticking around. a defiant donald trump with a fist pump delighting his supporters outside trump tower, but inside what one source close to the campaign describes as paralysis after a d reckoning within the gop, dozens of republican members of congress taking back support of their nominee including all female republican senators except iowa's joni ernst. >> i will tell you who i'm not supporting and that's hillary clinton. >> the fallout coming after this recording surfaced from access hollywood, a program owned by nbc universal. >> when you are a star they let you do it. you can do anything. >> whatever you want. >> grab them by the [ bleep ].
6:03 am
trump said he wasn't a war hero now deciding trump's hot mic moment was just too many. vulnerable senators saying they will write in mike pence instead as trump's running mate sends a warning shot hinting at how much rides on trump's debate performance tonight, declining to appear at a wisconsin festival where house speaker paul ryan sent a signal of his own. >> let me just start off by saying there is a bit of an elephant in the room and it is a troubling situation, i'm serious, it is. >> trump is making clear he won't step down or back down from attacks against bill clinton. retweeting juan eat at that broderick twice yesterday, a woman who accused bill clinton of raping her. trump all but assuring america the former president's past will be present tonight. >> bill clinton has actually abused women and hillary has
6:04 am
discuss this more in the coming days. see you at the debate on sunday. >> reporter: that part of trump's 90 second video statement saying sorry to the public and to his wife apparently privately. melania trump saying she has accepted her husband's apology for comments she considered unacceptable and offensive even as more controversial audio has been revealed, like this older interview with howard stern. >> your daughter. >> she's beautiful. [ bleep ]. >> trump's base of support unswayed. >> i just think we all need to stick together as republicans and we can't let hillary in there. just can't. >> tonight's debate set to cap one of the most extraordinary weekends of 2016, a campaign and a party in crisis. and this morning we're getting an early snapshot of what americans think donald trump should do, an online poll from
6:05 am
believe he should stay in the race, 39% think he should drop out. willie. >> and the clinton campaign has been relatively quiet since that first statement on friday, secretary clinton calling trump's comments horrific. last night "snl" imagined the campaign's reaction. >> it made me feel just horrible and very -- depressed. i'm sorry. it is a very, very sad our country and for all women minus one. >> so, hallie, as you said in your piece there the trump campaign obviously is going to go there on the past of president bill clinton. how does hillary clinton handle that debate tonight? >> reporter: one source tells nbc they teld a conference call with outside allies in which they previewed their strategy, it is to not talk about this
6:06 am
not put more spin on the ball, if you will, letting trump languish in this media cycle. there was a little bit of a hint as to how clinton might respond, one official pointed out that in that video statement trump did not apologize to the women he was talking about or to women in general. that could be something we hear reflected from clinton tonight. >> hallie, thank you very much. debate taking place right behind hallie a little later this evening. a lot of eyeballs on it after all this. the revelation o by trump have led more than 20 national republican elected officials to say he should drop out race. others standing by. steve cortez a member of trump's advisory council and msnbc political analyst hugh hewitt who pulled his support and called for trump to get out of the race. >> hugh, i will read to you a portion of john mccain's statement yesterday. donald trump's behavior this week, said mccain, concluding with the disclosure of his
6:07 am
and boasts about sexual assaults make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy. hugh, tell me about your thoughts and why you decided to pull your support and going so far as to say donald trump ought to get out of the race for the good of the country. >> i think it's in the best interest for the country, the campaign, the republican party all the way up and down the ticket and his own family and mr. trump to exit and do so in a way that will earn him some credit from not just the republican party but histns devastating political hit over the weekend since you will remember the sports injury, joe thighs man getting hit by lawrence taylor 31 years ago. trump might think he can play at this point, i think tonight is going to be cringe inducing if he brings up the inn if i had else of president clinton which are so far beyond his own in the past that he bragged about it the on the tape that that will be an explosive day and by tomorrow morning it will
6:08 am
when there aren't many people willing to talk to you much less come out and support you. >> what was it about the comments on friday? why wasn't it the muslim ban of last december, why wasn't it the fat shamer of a former miss joofrs? why did this change your opinion now? >> there are a number of reasons behind that. first of all, the comments are objectively and unqualifiably disgusting. i cringe every time i hear them played because i know there are children in rooms across the united states asking what is -- is unlike the other issues. there has always been a margin of error for mr. trump, you can always attribute to hip when, for example, he can a came down the escalator although those remarks have been misrepresented a lot what he said was among those mexican immigrants coming into the country are some rapists. there are ways to have given him the benefit of the doubt and he did win the republican nomination, it cannot be taken from him. if this tape had surfaced before cleveland he would not be the
6:09 am
hope he wants to salvage his family name, his business, his dignity and just get out. >> steve, you have stuck by donald trump through a lot of stories like this over the last 18 months or so. did you consider at any time in the last 36 hours pulling your support for donald trump? >> well, look, i think everyone has to at least consider it in a moment like this and i have enormous repeat for hugh, love his show, but i would disagree in this regard. i think that we at least owe donald trump as the republican nominee we oweim tonight. he needs to speak directly to the american people, he needs to explain himself. i would say i'm a believer in forgiveness and redemption, contrary to hillary clinton we are not irredeemable and he gave a an unreserved policy and he needed to do which i'm glad because his remarks were reprehensible. i'm a father of three daughters and i also cringe when i hear those kind of comments that he made on tape and i frankly hope i never hear them again.
6:10 am
have two flawed candidates right here, two largely incredibly disliked candidates, they have a starkly different vision for america and i believe that the american people given those two visions, status quo on hillary clinton's part and growth and prosperity and security on donald trump's part, i believe that they are going to opt for donald trump's vision for america, but he clearly onus is on him he has to make the case tonight. >> you mentioned your daughters and family. i will ask you what were the conversations like in your house over the weekend as maybe your you continue to support donald trump after their comments were made public. >> right. thankfully from my perspective they are all still enthusiastically supporting donald trump. i talked to my oldest daughter on the phone because i don't want dad embarrassing him on air and they said, look, we have a very different vision for america than hillary clinton. she is a fundamentally flawed
6:11 am
the status quo which is slow growth and terror on the march. those are more important issues, this is from my teenage daughter, she is into politics, from my teenage daughter who said those are more important issues. i care more about the economy and isis than i do about donald trump talking krastly over a decade ago. >> steve cortez sticking at the side of donald trump, hugh hewitt stepping away. let's bring in nbc's political director moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. you said somhi said it's a 50/50 shot that donald trump shows up tonight. what did you mean by that? >> i mean just that. i mean, i think that, look, i think it's clear this morning and people i've talked to he is determined to go tonight, but you could easily make the calculation that there is nothing that he can say tonight that won't turn it into a debacle. that he is not prepared for this debate, he has not done -- look, he was not prepared for this debate before these revelations.
6:12 am
is he in a state of mind that won't send him to a point where he will do things even worse or say things even worse tonight that will cause even more problems. so it wouldn't surprise me if someone gives him the advice to say, do you know what, take the hit for not showing up, it might be better than watching what happens in this 90 minutes tonight because i will be honest with you, willie, we have never seen anything like this. >> yeah. >> and we've never had a moment like this debate. >> do you think if he does show up, chuck, he's going to do what he has threatened to do, even in his apology he started talking about it and it is to, quote, go nuclear against hillary clinton, that means bringing up bill clinton and his past. will that be the strategy? is that the way through this for donald trump? >> he is a wounded animal, that's what somebody described him today and i thought it was pretty good. he is a wounded animal.
6:13 am
women has been brought up in the past he immediately pivots to this. i can't imagine that he won't do that tonight because he's done it before and he's threatened it before and he did it in that radio. i think he's getting all the advice in the world to not do that, but what's the evidence that he won't? >> it will be an ugly night in st. louis. we will check back with you later in the show. we will be looking for you on "meet the press," your guests include trump adviser guiliani and republican utah senator mike lee who has called for trump to get out of the race. tonight we will be streaming the debate on nbcnews.com and watch it live on msnbc, coverage begins at 9:00 eastern time. other big story this morning the damage from what was hurricane matthew, the storm turning toward the atlantic. miguel almaguer is in wilmington, north carolina, where cleanup for matthew is now under way. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the weather blustery but much
6:14 am
blew out to sea it left behind plenty of misery. yesterday in this area there were nearly 600 water rescues, today unfortunately four people still remain missing, hundreds of rescuers remain in this area, they were scouring local neighborhoods, walking through flood water, making sure everyone is okay. more than 11 inches of rain fell in this area, the hurricane responsible for 11 deaths here in the u.s. as you mentioned that cleanup effort is under way, some between 4 to $6 billion. of course, this hurricane pummeled florida, the carolinas and georgia, all four of those states were in a state of emergency, the cleanup effort should take several days if not weeks in some neighborhoods, there are downed trees all across this area including littering local highways where officials are still trying to clean the area. the cleanup here is going to take quite some time. >> looking at staggering
6:15 am
carolina, thanks. we will get dylan's forecast in a minute. police say an armed suspect shot and killed two police officers and wounded another. the officers were called to the suspect's home for a domestic disturbance when he opened fire. police caught him 12 hours later. one of the officers was a 27-year-old woman who had just given birth four months ago. the other a 35-year-old veteran of the force who was just months away from his scene when a recreational sailboat overturns spilling 30 people including several children into the grij id waters below. boaters were able to get them to safety before rescue workers arrived. two children were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. chicago cubs fans are cautiously dreaming of breaking the curse this year, but last night's playoff game against the san francisco giants had them
6:16 am
cubs pitcher carl hendricks was hit by a line drive, had to leafed the game, his replacement pitcher travis wood later hit a home run, the first by a reliever since 1924, the cubs lead the giants by two games to none in the first round of the playoffs. dylan is here with a check of the forecast. >> we're finally starting to see matthew wind down a bit, it's no longer a tropical system, it's post tropical at this point and we are still seeing heavy rain in maryland and still have flash flood warnings across parts of north carolina, even norfolk, virginia, picked up 7 1/2 inches of rain. so it's post tropical at this point but still has winds at 75 miles an hour, all that means is instead of gaining all its energy from the ocean it's more like a regular storm at this point and then it will now continue to move just to the east, we are not expecting that full on loop back down into the bahamas. we have a cold front in the northeast, that's what's drawing up the moisture from the tropical system that's producing the rain in new jersey, new york
6:17 am
will last into southeastern massachusetts until we get into monday morning, then once it clears out we will see much better conditions the entire week looks dry up and down the east coast. that's a look at the weather across the country now here's a peek out your window. east coas. that's a look at the weather across the country. now here's a peek at the weather out your window. and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, pull up a chair. >> can we get the pregnant lady a chair? dylan is sticking around, we will have much more looking at tonight's debate.
